Tools to Outfit Your Kitchen

Use this list to determine what you may need or want to add in your kitchen. It can also come in handy when choosing a gift for someone.

♦♦♦♦ Starter Kitchen
Tools marked with 4 diamonds may be suitable for a single person or young couple who is an occasional cook, or for a college apartment. They are the basic tools that should probably be in every kitchen.

♦♦♦ Standard Kitchen
Add tools marked with 3 diamonds to the Starter Kitchen for a person or family who likes to cook, and who cooks often.

♦♦ Well Stocked Kitchen
Add tools marked with 2 diamonds for the cook who likes many varied recipes, and who loves to experiment with new recipes.

Luxury & Specialty Kitchen
The Well Stocked Kitchen will add tools from this list with every new experimental recipe. You will see collections of these tools in the kitchens of many successful chefs. Any item marked with 1 diamond would also be an excellent gift for the aspiring chef in your life.
